CHS Drama Club to present 'Little Women'

Saturday, April 4, 2009

Cloverdale High School drama club will present its spring play "Little Women" April 10 and 11 in the cafeteria. Both performances will be presented at 7 p.m.

Based on the American classic by Louisa May Alcott, the play chronicles the lives of the March family during and after the Civil War. The four daughters are very close-knit, but with drastically different personalities.

Jo March (portrayed by Christina Christian) wants to be a successful writer; Meg (Chelsea Leach) longs to be a wealthy man's wife; Beth (Hannah Ramey) is content to stay at home and play the piano; and the youngest, Amy (Megan Matthews), is Europe-bound in hope of becoming a famous artist.

The March family isn't complete without the dedicated matriarch, Marmee (Holly Roberson), the ailing Father (Cameron Hastings), and a bitter Aunt (Brittany Wallace). Honorary members of the March family include Teddy "Laurie" Lawrence (Mark Tyler), who is infatuated with Jo; John Brooke (Kyle Chambers), who is hoping to win Meg's affection; and Professor Bhaer, a German professor who might beat Laurie to Jo's heart (played by Chauncey Baker).

Fans of the novel will enjoy many similarities to the classic's plot, while those unfamiliar with the story will be introduced to one of the treasures of American literature that is appropriate for the whole family.

Tickets will be sold at the door and are $4 for CHS students and staff, $5 for non-CHS students and adults, $2 for children under 12 and $4 for senior citizens.

CHS Students need to bring their students identification cards in order to receive the discounted rate.
